    Default Anything I need to know about Philtrum Piercings?

    I am planning to get my Philtrum pierce so is there anything I need to be prepared for or need to know?
    How would the swelling be? pain? healing time? aftercare? or anything else in general.

    Swelling varies according to person. Some people (like me) swell loads, others hardly swell at all. You can reduce swelling by taking ibuprofen (if you're not asthmatic or have kidney disease, or any other medical contraindication) and drinking cold drinks.
    Healing is fairly quick compared to other piercings, your mouth is an area of high blood supply and cell turnover. On average it takes 6 weeks to 3 months to heal, but everyone is different and any complications or poorly fitted/inferior quality jewellery may lengthen healing time.

    There's some excellent aftercare info here: http://www.holier-than-thou.co.uk/af...ing-aftercare/ and here: http://www.safepiercing.org/learn/pi...ct/id=23786889
